Photo of lake with a center island at a nature reserve

Pelaw Nature Reserve

These selection of pictures were taking at Pelaw/Gateshead Quarry Pond Nature Reserve situated on the border of Gateshead and Hebburn about twenty minutes brisk walk from Hebburn town center, Tyne and Wear.

The nature reserve brochure claims the pond and islands provide food, shelter and nesting sites for wildfowl and wetland birds. Mute swans, coot, mallard and grey heron are some of the wildlife that can be seen all year round and is also the feeding grounds for swallows and swifts.

The pond its self boosts a selection of fish (Perch, Chub, Roach, Tench, Brown Trout) and is used by the local angling association.
